RUSSIAN CZAR MAY ORDER
PORT ARTHUR SURRENDER
St. Petersburg, Russia, Dee. 3. It is believed here that if the Czar is
convinced that the fall of Pott Arthur is inevitable he will order the
ships sunk and the fortress surrendered. The press is advocating the
dispatch of the Baltic sea fleet to the Far East.
According to newspaper correspondents and others who have run the
blockade, there are altogether sixteen war vessels iu the harbor of Port
Arthur. This includes the battleships Resvit7.au, Pollava, Scvastapol,
Pobeida, and Czaravitch, all of which have been more or less damaged
by Japanese shells. The Retvizan is reported partly submerged resting
upon its stern. The Bayan, an armored cruiser, is Admiral Wiren's
flagship. There are also four gunboats and several torpedo boat destroy
ers in fighting trim, beside a flotilla of smaller vessels. The marines
have been engaged in making repairs upon these vessels which will be
used iu the event of an attack or another sortie. The Russians have
placed mines under all public buildups, wharves, arsenals and every
thing that could possibly be of use to the Japanese, with the intention of
causing their destruction should the Japanese enter the city.

Additional Money For Honolulu.
The Chronicle says: A" L. C. Atkinson, Secretary of the Territory of
Hawaii, was a passenger on the steamer Alameda, which reached port
yesterday from Honolulu. He is a guest at the Palace. Secretary At
kinson is on his way to New York to undertake the floating of $i,ooo,
000 of Territorial bonds. Speaking of his mission yesterday, he said:
"The Territory of Hawaii is authorized to issue,, for the purpose of
public improvement, bonds to the amount ot 3 per cent of its assessed
valuation, with the proviso, however, that not more than $1,000,000 of
bonds may be issued in any one year. It is not the purpose of the Ter-
I rttory, however, to issue more than $3,000,000 of bonds, and it may be
I that only $2,000,000 will be issued.
I "Last year Governor Carter, then Secretary of the Territory, went East
land floated the first issue of $1,000,000, the proceeds from which iiave
been used in improving the sewer sstem of Honolulu and in the build-
ing 01 wnarves, roaus aim linages. 1 ne proceeds irom the second issue
of $1,000,000, which it is my business to dispose of, will be used to com
plete the improvements already undertaken. Whether an additional
$1,000,000 of bonds will be disposed of next year has not been decided.
Tlie Territory's bonds issued last year were disposed of at a good price,
and I am hopeful that we will be able to secure a good figure for those
now to be sold." Secretary Atkinson will depart for the East this morning.

Sees the Inside of Port Arthur.
Nagasaki, Japan, Nov. 7.- Edward Emerson, Jr., correspondent of
the Chicago Daily News, is the latest war writer to have run the Japanese
blockade and enter besieged Port Arthur. Emerson has just returned
and gives an interesting description of conditions in the beleaguered
stronghold, which he left just previous to the recent general assault.
He says: "After having arrived, along with a companion, at the light
house on Liaoshan promontory, close to Port Arthur, the boat in which
we had sailed front Miaotao Islands was picked up by a small Russian
torpedo boat attached to the battleship Peresviet and towed to that vessel,
which lies two miles outside of the harbor. The Peresviet is as badly
battered by Japanese shells as the Cesarevitch. Both ship and crew were
in a filthy condition. From the Peresviet we were taken to Admiral
Wiren, who was on board the Bayan, outside of the Tiger's Tail. The
Bayan also was badly damaged and dirty. Admiral Viren asked for
news of the Baltic fleet, and learning that it was then still at Reval ex
pressed his despair. Altogether there are sixteen fighting ships iu the
harbor. None of these have been dismantled. The sailors are kept on
board and only machine guns have been sent ashore. There is plenty of
coal, but ammunition is scarce. In the distance, ten miles off, can be
seen the smoke of Admiral Togo's blockaders. The Japanese fleet has
been doing little bombardment of late. In the military prison behind
Golden Hill there are thirty-three Japanese. From the flagship I was
escorted to the harbor master, who was found in a bombproof cellar
under the Admiralty building, equipped with telephone, telegraph and
electric mine connections. We were then escorted to General Stoessel's
house. All along the road to the general's house were seen the ravages
of the incessant bombardment. The Japanese guns fire at ten-minute
intervals. The Russians reply every half hour. One battery of ten
guns is placed a few rods from the general's house. Ninety per cent of
the Japanese shells do no damage. Most of the killed are coolies, the
weekly average being thirty. The city is remarkably tranquil and street
traffic goes on smoothly. The shops are open all day. Two restaurants
are running. Meals cost two rubles ($1). There is no fresh meat except
horseflesh. Ten horses are slaughtered daily. One hundred horses were
all that remained when I left. There is plenty of canned stuff and large
supplies of rice, wheat and bean cake. There is no lack of vodka.
Single eggs cost thirty kopeck (15 cents). Since the Japanese captured
the reservoir there is nothing to be had but cistern water. Typhoid is
prevalent. Nobody, apparently, minds the bombardment. Children
play in the streets. Coolies work under guard. Carriages and carts are
driven about. I observed an officer teaching a woman to ride a bicycle
while bombs passed overhead. The General learned frnm m, fnr tin. fircf
ime of Kuropatkin's defeats. He was not inclined to credit the story
until convinced by some Chefoo newspapers that I showed him. It per
fectly astounded him to know that Kuropatkin was at Mukden. He
believed him to be advancing southward. He said iti Russian: 'There
is no help, then, but to die or go to Matsuyama prison. He asked that
Kuropatkin's reverses be concealed from the garrison, which still believes
that Kuropatkin is attacking General Nogi's rear. Stoessel praises the
bravery and kindness of the Japanese, who take great care of the Russian
wounded. He feels proud of fighting such foes. At luncheon I was
presented to Mme. Stoessel and her daughter. Seven persons sat dowu
to luncheon, which was a frugal meal ill the Russian style, with vodka,
wine and tea. I praised the beefsteak. Stoessel laughed. It was horse
flesh. Mme. Stoessel laughed. She professes to like horseflesh. After
luncheon a bomb burst outside, the whole house was shaken and the
upper windows shattered. The conversation, however, continued with
out interruption. No one was killed. Mme. Stoessel quietly told her
servant to mend the windows with paper. In the afternoon we visited
the Army and Navy Clubs. Everybody was very gay."
